Or simply excellent interpreters of psychological ‘tells’?
What if a fake fortune-teller suddenly discovered her fortune-telling wasn’t a trick after all? What if she discovered she really could see into the future?
That was the starting point for yesterday’s NaNoWriMo short story.
But… as usual, the story ran away from me and insisted on becoming something different. So, instead of my fortune-teller being in possession of a supernatural talent, she turns out to be just really, really good at sniffing out the truth.
Sigh. I do my best to write about magic and the paranormal. But I guess this proves you can take the woman away from the science, but you can never take the science away from the woman. Or something!
Anyway, only one more day of NaNo left and one more story to go in my #30days30shorts challenge.
